First, check all the processes that are running:

SELECT * FROM pg_stat_activity WHERE state = 'active';

So you can identify the PID of the hanging query you want to terminate, run this:

SELECT pg_cancel_backend(PID);

This query might take a while to kill the query, so if you want to kill it the hard way, run this instead:

SELECT pg_terminate_backend(PID);
